First time I've been out since COVID felt a bit uncomfortable but once I got to Hard Rock Manchester I was made to feel at ease, temperature was taken outside then had to sanitize before entering, was incredibly clean inside, service was great, food & drink was excellent definitely going back

Could not fault Hardrock Manchester. Screening before entering, full explanation of what staff are doing regarding cleanliness, to temperature being taken before entering.
Food was amazing as always. Limited menu, but still a great choice. Went on a Monday so had the eat out discount as well.
Would recommend and look forward to returning.

Had a fabulous time! Food was absolutely brilliant and tasted lovely, but we felt a bit rushed towards the end of the night, unsure of why thought maybe the top floor was closing, but wasn’t told what was happening was just given the bill and card machine and told to have a good night.. other than that faultless.

We were seated inside and told it was table service. After 30 mins I had to find someone to ask if we could get a drink. We swapped to a table outside and waited another 15mins before I asked again for a drink and then another 15 mins I got up and asked if it was being made. The manager was lovely and said it was free for the hour wait. A waitress then Came for payment so I explained we were told it was free because we had waited so long. We finished our drinks and waited around 20 more minutes weigh empty glasses on our table before I went inside and asked if we could be served. Very disappointed as we visit every Hard Rock Cafe in every new country/city we go to and have never had a bad experience.

It is a very nice, rock music inspired diner with a lot of space to either drink or eat or both. The menu currently is a little small but immensely tasty.

Fab service as always and good attention to H+S requirements. Atmosphere not as good due to capacity restrictions and reduced volume of music- but that is something that couldn't be helped at this time.
Looking forward to visiting again when things are more 'normal'.

Really nice and COVID regulations strictly adhered to. One issue was the temperature but it was the hottest day of the year outside so it might have been more difficult to keep the internal temperature down

Absolutely great experience during COVID. The service was good and the food good too. It’s just a shame the cafe didn’t have the cocktail glasses in stock to buy since we collect them from each restaurant we visit which was extremely disappointing

Amazing service and Food. Cleanliness was the best I've seen! Our temperature was checked on arrival and we were asked to use the hand gel provided. The venue had dedicated staff who cleaned every "high risk surface" every 5 minutes. We will certainly be returning and we highly recommend!
Thankyou

Enjoyed a trip to HR Manchester, I live in Wakefield, to partake of my birthday gift from HR membership . The staff were very cheery and helpful. The server was very nice and helpful also. Drinks came quickly followed by our food choices. An excellent dining experience and this why I always try to seek out Hard Rock cafes in the cities I visit. Keep up the great work.

Felt really safe compared to other restaurants with regard to Covid safeguards. Limited menu but sufficient although one guest felt Mac and cheese tasted different, poss new recipe? Overall, great experience considering the need to limit numbers. Well done guys.

Amazing time x all staff were super friendly and upbeat despite having to implement the special measure. They went above and beyond. My husband and I felt perfectly safe being there heavily pregnant and with a four year old . Despite being busy the table service was amazing and the food as always was fantastic! Staff are a real credit to hard rock x

The waiter told me they did not have a drinks menu. Only the two cocktails on the food menu. He told me they do not sell milkshakes anymore because of Covid but I saw milkshakes being taken to other tables. He was nice enough but clearly had little information about what he should have been providing.

Had an amazing time at the hard rock in Manchester on Tuesday night. We got seated straight away and from the minute we stepped in the service was unreal. Our waitress Gemma was funny, made sure we had everything we want and made the whole experience. I hope she gets the recognition she deserves. Thankyou to the team at hard rock for making our first date out since Lockdown enjoyable x
